Yesterday, the Orioles defeated the Twins, 8-1, for their second win in a row. Alfredo Simon pitched very well, going eight strong innings and only giving up a run.
The offense came alive again, as Nolan Reimold homered and drove in three. As well, Mark Reynolds also plated in three runs, J.J. Hardy had three hits and Matt Wieters walked four times.
The big news from yesterday - aside from the win - involved Adam Jones as he left the game early due to illness (he was replaced by Matt Angle in the 2nd inning). Jones says he's fine and should be ready to play tonight; however, he had to go to the hospital for tests.
Jones complained about feeling weak, plus complained about shortness of breath along with chest pains according to various reports. It sounds like he had a muscular issue, or nausea, but let's hope it's nothing more than that.
It's good to hear he's feeling fine, but it is sure scary news to hear -- especially for a twenty-something, professional athlete.
